Emergence of multidrug resistance and reduced ciprofloxacin susceptibility in Salmonella Typhi rendered conventional drugs ampicillin, chloramphenicol and co-trimoxazole ineffective or suboptimal for treatment3.
Existing antibiotics including Ampicillin (AMP), Cefotaxime (CTX), Cefixime (CFM), Co-trimoxazole (SXT) and Ofloxacin (OFX) were checked for sensitivity by disk diffusion method and findings are given in Table.
Vancomycin, linezolid, rifampicin, clindamycin, co-trimoxazole and teicoplanin susceptibilities were interpreted according to CLSI breakpoints, while tigecycline, fosfomycin and fusidic acid were interpreted according to BSAC breakpoints.
Antineoplastic agents, (8-10) psychotherapeutic agents, (7) exogenous estrogens, (11) anabolic steroids, (12,13) sulfasalazine and co-trimoxazole, (14-16) tetrahydrocannabinol (the main psychoactive component of marijuana), (17) alcohol and abused drugs, (18) and pesticides (19) are the main drugs affecting sexual function and fertility capacity.

maltophilia to co-trimoxazole and fluoroquinolones and detection of integron elements between isolates in this study showed that this rate corresponded to other data obtained from other studies.
01% (88) of isolates showed resistance towards Ampicillin and Co-Trimoxazole respectively.
19,20] However, in India the degree of resistance to commonly used antibiotics such as chloramphenicol, ampicillin and co-trimoxazole in the era of quinolone resistance is not clear.
15-18) Roussey-Kessler et al performed a RCT of 225 children (156 girls and 69 boys, age one month to three years) with VUR Grade I--III randomly allocated to receive daily co-trimoxazole or no treatment for 18 months.
The antibiotic susceptibility testing by disk diffusion and automated microbroth dilution testing (Phoenix; BD Diagnostics Maryland, US) revealed resistance to multiple antibiotics including aminoglycosides (gentamycin and amikacin), ampicillin, and ciprofloxacin and sensitivity to amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, ceftazidim, piperacillintazobactam, carbapenems, and co-trimoxazole, and intermediate susceptibility to levofloxacin.
Antibiotics used for sensitivity were co-amoxiclav, ciprofloxacin, pipemedic acid and co-trimoxazole.
Antibiotics sensitivity testing was performed by Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method by using ampicillin (10 [micro]g), gentamicin (10 [micro]g), ceftazidime (30 ^g), ciprofloxacin (5 [micro]g), co-trimoxazole (25 [micro]g), doxycycline (10 [micro]g), ceftriaxone (30 [micro]g), amikacin (30 [micro]g), imipenem (10 [micro]g), ofloxacin (5 [micro]g), piperacillin + tazobactam (100/10 [micro]g), oxacillin (5 [micro]g), vancomycin (30 [micro]g), linezolid (30 [micro]g), colistin (10 [micro]g), amoxicillin + clavulanic acid (20/10 [micro]g).
